How do I stop these 404s from happening?

Just downloaded and installed Magento on DreamHost- installation went smoothly. I have updated the php5 cgi file and made the necessary changes within the .htaccess to get things running decently, and not spit out a hard 404 error, and instead show me the nice Magento 404 page.

Now I am having a few issues:
1) Some pages work, and some pages don’t. For example, the home page gives me a 404. The login works. The My Account does not. The About Us page does work. Nothing else does.

2) I cannot add a new administrator in the admin back-end. It just doesn’t stick. But issue #1 is far more important for now.

Do you have any ideas? Any known fixes?
